Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai and actor-model Vivian Dawson have gone their separate ways after six years of dating.

Her manager confirmed this to Apple Daily, saying they reached a decision together to break up and the split last month was amicable.

The news was shocking as their relationship had been seen as stable, with fans expecting them to get married.

Tsai, 36, and New Zealand-born Dawson, 32, hit it off while working on a music video together in 2010.

Their romance was not well received at first as he was then unknown compared to Tsai, who was already an established star.

In 2012, Dawson went into acting, later making a name for himself in the movie Tiny Times 3. - THE STRAITS TIMES


Washington: Fences is 'brilliant'

For Denzel Washington, bringing Fences, the award-winning stage play about blue-collar African-Americans, to the big screen has been a long-held dream.

"It's brilliant. It's like, why make Death Of A Salesman a movie? Because it is some of the greatest writing in the 20th century," the US actor said.

Pulitzer-winning Fences is the first play by the late, influential black playwright August Wilson to be turned into a film.
